Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

Here’s the good news: the rain is going to be moving out and the sunshine will return. The bad news: it’s going to be windy and cooler.

An area of low pressure off the coast will interact with a strong area of high pressure to our north bringing us a gusty northeast wind for the next few days.

Water temperatures right now are mainly in the 50s, so with a northeast wind we can expect air temperatures mainly in the 50s.

But the trade-off is plenty of sunshine. Expect partly cloudy skies along the coast with mostly sunny conditions inland. We will see high temperatures in the mid to upper 50s on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

We will hold onto the sunshine for the weekend, but temperatures will warm up a bit. Expect highs near 60 on Saturday and into the mid 60s on Sunday.

Just in time for you to head back to work on Monday we warm back into the lower 70s.
